Land ownership laws are defined at the State level. So your first bit of research should be to go unto the IC list of communities in Oregon and contact or visit them and find out how they are legally structured. It is usually not helpful to get such information from other states because your state law defines what options you have. Having said that, you might look into what kinds of land trust setups are available in Oregon. In many other states, land trusts can be used to hold property in common, while creating private lease options for housing. The downside/upside to this model is that often it is difficult or impossible to get bank financing (mortgages) because there is nothing the bank can use to foreclose and sell. The Northwest Intentional Communities Association website at http://www.ic.org/nica/ has information about Oregon Communities and also hosts an annual communities gathering which every other year is held in Oregon. These gatherings are great places to meet people from communities. Rob Sandelin Sharingwood Community Snohomish County, WA
